Reve D'ete by Rance Perfume. Reve D'ete, which means summer dream, is a delightful fruity green perfume with unexpected depths.
The opening is bright and warm with top notes of Sicilian lemon, neroli, coconut, cassis, and fig tree leaf. The fig theme continues into the heart with middle notes of fig fruit and jasmine sambac. The base notes create a fresh, woody dry down with patchouli, Virginia cedar wood, amber, fig wood, sandalwood, and white musk. The fig notes lend a subtle sweetness to the
scent. With a lighter sillage and longevity, you may wish to reapply this fragrance after a long day.
